It's understandably a very popular pre-order.
But did you know it's outpacing the biggest names on the Xbox One's launch list? According to a Cowen & Co. report , we get a peek at the pre-order standings for 2013. As if anyone is surprised, Call of Duty: Ghosts sits at the top.
But look at Killzone: Shadow Fall , the anticipated PS4 exclusive. It's tracking ahead of Forza 5 , Ryse and Dead Rising 3 on the pre-order numbers list. The 2013 Cowen Video Game Odometer is based on an analysis of NPD sales data and Amazon.com best-seller results from recent years. Then games are given a score on a 100 point scale; the Killzone sequel scored a 30.3, significantly higher than Forza 5 (18.8), Dead Rising 3 (15.0) and Ryse (13.2). Still, Knack is only at 7.7 and DriveClub is sitting at 3.0, so Xbox One pre-orders are more popular overall.
We probably shouldn't forget that pre-ordering DriveClub seems silly to many. It'll be free to PlayStation Plus subscribers, and you'll need Plus to play online, anyway. As for Shadow Fall , it's undoubtedly the most anticipated PS4 exclusive for 2013.
